Body

With Susan Berman as runaway Wren and Richard Hell as Eric, director Susan Seidelman’s atmospheric drama takes us back to the East Village punk scene of the 1980s. With a script by Seidelman and Ron Nyswaner, who would go on to write Philadelphia (1993), and a soundtrack featuring influential cult band The Feelies, Smithereens was one of the first independent American movies to screen in competition at Cannes. Seidelman would go on to direct ’80s classic Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) starring Madonna.
